303: “Fortunate Son” With Carey O’Donnell



This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince welcome television writer and co-host of the Sexy Unique Podcast Carey O’Donnell (@ecareyo) to the pod to discuss episode 3 of season 3 of the Sopranos “Fortunate Son” – an episode in which Chris gets made.

“Fortunate Son” marks the beginning of what I would consider to be the gabbagool age of the Sopranos, which is the same as a golden age but better. In this episode, Chris gets made and struggles with the increased responsibilities, Tony discovers that much of his panic attacks are meat-based, AJ struggles with feelings of being a real dumdum, and Janice straight up steals Svetlana’s prosthetic leg in order to get back musical theater records. It’s a fantastic episode in the middle of a monumental season. See, sometimes we actually LIKE the Sopranos. Oh and Chrissy robs a Jewel concert in a Scream mask. Fucking epic.

Anyway, please leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and/or wherever you get your podcasts.


Pod Yourself A Gun – A Sopranos Podcast EPISODE 1



Welcome to Pod Yourself A Gun – A Sopranos Podcast, where every week comedians Vince Mancini and Matt Lieb (of the Filmdrunk Frotcast) take you through each episode of the most important TV show ever made. In this pilot episode of Pod Yourself A Gun, we discuss the pilot episode of The Sopranos with TV critic Alan Sepinwall who has written multiple books about the Sopranos, most recently “The Sopranos Sessions” available now at book stores everywhere. We dissect every facet of the pilot, from the original Father Phil Intintola, to the objectively terrible Sopranos theme song. It’s just plain awful. It’s barely music. What does “born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes” even mean? Anyway, hope you enjoy the episode as much as we enjoyed making it. And if you don’t enjoy it, va fangool.
